By Saundra Amrhein TAMPA, Fla. (Reuters) - Singer-songwriter Carlos Varela, dubbed "The Poet of Havana," has walked a cultural tightrope in Cuba for decades, questioning the island's communist government in his lyrics, while also hitting out at Washington's five-decades-old trade embargo. His songs earned him a following on both sides of the Florida Straits despite their Cold War divide. "The Poet of Havana," by Toronto-based film director Ron Chapman, depicts Varela as a symbol of a generation of Cuban artists born soon after the 1959 revolution who opted to stay in Cuba rather than emigrate. The documentary, which premiered last month at the Gasparilla International Film Festival in Tampa, will be shown in the United States, Cuba and England.
